Mumbai: Students can now seek help and resolve queries regarding First Year Junior College (FYJC) at 24 guidance centres that have been set up by the state education department. Corrections to spelling mistakes or errors in personal details will be rectified at these centres to ensure smooth admission process.
These 24 guidance centres are located in different pockets of the city. The details, address and contact numbers of these centres are mentioned on the state education department website. Education officers at these centres will help students who are confused about the FYJC online admission process.
Students can approach these centres for help if they are stuck at any stage during the admission process.
